hey, I'm jackie

 

for my college graduation, as I "entered the real world," my parents filled up a scrapbook of photos and answered questions about me, so I thought I'd have them introduce and tell you about me.

we share so many things in common...

 

mom: tall height, long feet, talk too much, love the beach, eat healthy, club exercise, high school track, shyness at a young age, strong willed, love our family, like clothing and jewlery.

Dad: taking pictures, watching movies, fiercely defensive of our favorite things.

 

our favorite thing to do together...

 

mom: eat, shop, beach, go to the ocean city boardwalk, merry-go-round and zoo (when younger), eat reeces, holiday dinners, talks, rides to connecticut.

dad: spending time with joanie. ICe cream!!!

 

you are unique because...

 

mom: you are a twin and yet your very own person. you know exactly what to do and where you want to be.

dad: you eat pickles as if they were candy! you defend your beliefs, but will accept those of others.

 

why you were given the name you have...

 

mom: I looked at a jacqueline susann book with a red binding and gold script; also named after a first lady and actress; same initial as your twin, jonathan.

dad: none of the above!!! jacqueline is a beautiful, traditional name worthy of a daughter like you.

 

early on, you had a special talent for...

 

mom: art as you started drawing at a very young age.

dad: running (away from sport! our neighbor's dog)

 

you've overcome these obstacles...

 

mom: having to wear a size 12 shoe at age 14, being taller than your friends, understanding joanie, competing with your twin, shyness before high school, summer birthdays with friends on vacation.

dad: being an apple in a pc family!

 

I loved teaching you how to...

 

Mom: walk, talk, "tell jokes," swim, read, write, eat healthy, and become a good person.

dad: use "like + "You know" when appropriate and not every other word (still working on it).

 

What I learned from you...

 

mom: how to use the computer, accessorize, and how to accept people in general. you are younger and "less judgemental" and we have a lot to learn from you.

dad: there is a place in life for art as well as science (at least some art!!)
